Since the 1992 reform of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) recognized the need for contributing to an environmentally sustainable form of agriculture production and management. The increasing intensification of agriculture has involved the abandonment of zones historically defined as semi natural pasture lands and the decay of traditional rural landscape in the agriculture system. This constitutes a serious danger for the conservation of biodiversity and landscape.
